The Community Krieg Guide - All you ever wanted to know

Thanks to @xmngr for the banner!

Please note: a lot of the links here point to the old forums and may be broken due to the forum change. I’ll update the links once they’re ported over here. Thanks.

In this thread you’ll find links to guides, tools and other sorts of topics related to our favorite psycho.

I know who Krieg is!

Is Krieg included in the Season Pass?
No. Gearbox clearly stated that the Season Pass only includes four campaign DLCs.

Does Krieg take damage while on fire?
Yes, the self-igniting works like the standard burn effect.

Is it beneficial to use bladed weapons?
Yes and no. Krieg has a built-in bonus. The amount of additional damage is based on his level. At level 61 and no roid shield you’ll deal more damage without a bladed gun which would give you +50% melee damage. However, a Law (unique bladed pistol; +100% melee damage) and a Rapier (unique bladed assault rifle; +200% melee damage) are still better in terms of melee damage. If you wear a roid shield even +50% melee damage weapons are better than the standard attack.

Does Silence the Voices REALLY have a 12% chance to hit yourself?
Yes, it is always and in any kind of situation a 12% chance regardless of how many points you spend, how fast you hit the attack button, what weapon you’re wielding or other sort of factor you could think of. If you don’t believe it watch this video, search the forums for the several threads about this topic or feel free to create a new thread to get the same answer as in this FAQ section.


Thanks for porting this thread. I forgot it.

I already ported The Avenger and Love Thumper analysis.

Thanks Dank. I’ll get those added after I get the rest of the guides added.

I’ve updated the thread with all of the information from the old one. If anybody has ported over the information listed from the old forums, please provide me a link. Thanks.

I need help in borderlands 2 I’m at the wildlife preserve I’m level 16 and everything is level 21 just really need help getting past this part, my gamer tag is leo493 please help thank you.

Are you on the 360 or One? I will move your post to the proper place.
This thread however, isn’t to seek Co op help.

A lot of the resources in the OP are now unavailable.

That’s because of the old forum archiving process. You’ll need to add to any link that starts with oldforums. I’ll get them updated so the links will work again.

I’ve updated all of the links to the old forum. Please let me know if any of them still don’t work. Thanks.

Thank you!

I’m afraid that a lot of the links under the Mechanics, Melee GamePlay, Gameplay and Raid Boss links are broken…

They weren’t archived then. Hopefully someone can port them over.

I can make a simple banner for this tread gulf…



I’m at university now. I will be working on that later on.



Weird, but I like it. :dukeaffirmative:

This is the forum about K
nothing is weird in this part my fellow xD


Added Krieg_Krazy’s Unkempt Harold guide and updated the heads and skins screenshot thread.

Gulf, IMO you can remove the FAQ section. I wrote it when Krieg was newly released and there were a lot of these types of questions in the forums several times. But everybody who’s lurking around in here these days should know these things by now, plus there are enough resources (I think) which cover these topics.
The boss tactics might be extremely outdated, too, aren’t they?

Thanks for still maintaining this guide. :smiley:
